Halftime for Shakugan no Shana Second

November 17, 2007

Not happy

It’s not like the first half of Shana’s second season was completely uninteresting, but it’s far from what the first season accomplished. Nearly to zero fighting scenes, no love-rivaling between Shana and Kazumi (not even some hiding behind poles from the later), no visual antagonist plotting and too less Shana-Yuji interaction make this all a rather sad experience so far. Hecates addition to Yuji’s class might turn out to be some neat story element later on, but for now it only made this second season a rather bad school harem. But there seems to be light at the end of the tunnel now with the worst endured and my hopes are still up that the second half will have some of the old Shana feeling to it again, so that this little sentence will be more than true:

Hopefully

  1. Yeah hopefully…because as you’ve said, this season has felt like non-stop filler. I don’t even bother to rewatch the new episodes anymore, and I often skip over over parts and say ‘whatever.’ Its not like I missed anything important.


  2. That’s sadly all-too true.


  3. I wonder whether there are a lot of ‘filler’ like episodes in this season are in line with the stories told in the novels. A bit of school life stuff is okay (as this story has got to do with them in school as well), but 6 episodes of them is a bit too much for me now. Hopefully things will get better as we seem to have a different tone on episode 8.
